Oh, Hello…

Are you as in love with this little FREE stamp set as I am?  What is it about this little chubby chick?

Here’s another card using the Honeycomb Happiness set…

ohhello

See how they look all dressed up in Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper?  There’s a little masking here too.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Real Red cardstock, Love Blossoms DSP
  • Ink:  Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizazz and Pumpkin Pie
  • Stamps:  Honeycomb Happiness
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Honeycomb Embellishments, post it notes

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″
  • Stamp the chick on post it paper being sure to include the sticky part on the back.  Cut just the chick out (not the feet).
  • Stamp the first chick in the center of the card and add mask over her.  Now stamp two more chicks to the left and right of the center chick.  Remove mask.
  • Stamp the balloons for each chick.  Color the balloon bows Melon Mambo.
  • Stamp the chicks on three different dsp patterned papers and “fussy cut” each chick excluding the feet.  Attach the left and right chicks with adhesive and lastly the center one.  Stamp the chick beak three times on Real Red cardstock and “fussy cut”.  Add a beak to each chick with glue dots.
  • Using your Pear Pizazz marker color some grounding at their feet.  Stamp sentiment in Basic Black.
  • When mailing a card with these little honeycombs, I print on one side “peel and stick”.  Then I remove the paper from the other side and add to card front.  This way the receiver of the card can open the balloons.  Makes a cute interactive card.

Hope you enjoyed this little card…I’ve been excited to show you this one. It’s been kept propped up on my desk because it just makes me smile when I look at it…

I finished earlier this month the book In Order to Live written by a young girl that escaped with her mother from North Korea in 2006.  It is haunting.  Made much more interesting to me because of my trip to South Korea this past October.  When I heard reported on the news today that January 18th was the “saddest day” of the year (because of the bad weather, resolutions going by the wayside and bills due from the holidays)…I laughed.  With all the blessings we all enjoy in this country…how could we possibly have a sad day?  I totally recommend the book.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

  1. Billie, that is a cute and fun card with the chicks and the honeycomb balloons. Always learn something from your digits and appreciate them. Your “b-ism” today is what every mother keeps in her mind…no matter how old the children are. TFS this beautiful card.

    • Thank you HJ…this was such a fun card to make. Wouldn’t it make a cute birthday or shower invitation? …B!

  2. Paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques, and this chickie has the perfect plump body for it…Brilliant!
